@Virtual Guy , no worries using the grapple. My neighbor has done so for years, and I did when I borrowed his grapple. Hoses, fittings etc not even slightly affected. Now, you can't just take your time and you should be upwind. But only if you drive into the pit or stop and open another beer while you have the grapple over or in the fire will you have to worry about a hose bursting and hot oil cooking you like KFC.
